Today's SIG Alert!

Day 25 – John 16.24, 26-27: Until now you have not asked for anything in my name.  Ask and you will receive and your joy will be complete.  In that day you will ask in my name.  I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf.  No, the Father himself loves you.  Jude 20-21: Pray in the Holy Spirit.  Keep yourselves in God’s love.

  1. Pray that we will understand that as we are one with Christ through the Holy Spirit, we can pray in His name; we can pray in the Spirit of Christ.
  2. Pray for Christ New Testament Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. John Henderson, his wife Dorselene and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  3. Pray for New St. Paul Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. Lorenzo Edwards, his wife and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  4. Pray for the city of Torrance, their elected and appointed officials, their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray that God will use us as His servants, recognizing all the opportunities He places before us to serve Him, and winning the lost to faith in Jesus Christ.


‚ÄčThoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)


Love does not mean agreement.  Disagreement does not mean hate.   —Topeka Bible Church


It’s not a parent’s responsibility to have godly children.  It’s a parent’s responsibility to make sure their children have godly parents.  —unknown


We serve a God who loves to make straight lines with crooked sticks.  —R. C. Sproul


Once you see results, it becomes an addiction.


I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life ... That is why I succeed.  --Michael Jordan


Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life.  Tip toe if you must, but take the step.


The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.  --Nelson Mandela


You don’t get to choose how you’re going to die.  Or when.  You can only decide how you’re going to live.  Now.  --Joan Baez


Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.  --John Lennon, taken from comic strip writer Allen Saunders


I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do. -Leonardo da Vinci


When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us. -Helen Keller


When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life. -John Lennon


Friends are as companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life.  —Pythagoras


The soul is stronger than its surroundings.  —William James


So much of our time is spent in preparation, so much in routine and so much in retrospect, that the amount of each person’s genius is confined to a very few hours.  —-Ralph Waldo Emerson
